CONCUSSIONS-2SH-3SHOT BUB


WE HAVE ALARMING NEW INFORMATION THIS MORNING INVOLVING KIDS WHO PLAY SPORTS AND CONCUSSIONS.

LAST HOUR WE TOLD YOU ABOUT THE RISE IN CONCUSSIONS WITH THE SPORT, BASKETBALL.

A STUDY IN PEDIATRICS SHOWED A 70-PERCENT INCREASE IN TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES OVER THE YEARS.

CONCUSSIONS-BUB


IT CAN BE HARD FOR A PARENT TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BUMP ON THE HEAD AND A CONCUSSION. WHEN TO ACT AND WHEN TO LET THEIR CHILD SHAKE IT OFF. Return to index of stories...


CONCUSSIONS-VO-WIPE


THE EFFECTS OF A HEAD INJURY COULD BE DANGEROUS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND COGNITIVE CHANGES.

ALTHOUGH LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS AN IMPORTANT SIGN, IT ONLY OCCURS IN ABOUT 10-PERCENT OF ALL CONCUSSIONS.

WE SPOKE TO A PEDIATRICIAN AT FIRST CHOICE KID CARE IN FORT MYERS ABOUT HOW YOUR CHILD'S HEAD DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO STRIKE SOMETHING FOR A CONCUSSION TO OCCUR. Return to index of stories...


CONCUSSIONS-SOT ss


23:32:21-37

"Anything that would make the head shake rapidly. Moving from one side

to another-- the brain moves from one side to another and creates

little tears inside the brain and the imbalance actually going to be

the result of this."

SO HERE'S HOW YOU CAN SPOT ONE WHILE YOUR CHILD IS OUT ON THE FIELDS OR COURT--

IF YOU SEE THEIR HEAD SHAKE LIKE DOCTOR SHAPIRO JUST DESCRIBED OR IF YOU CHILD TAKES A HARD HIT.

YOU MAY SEE THESE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS SHORTLY AFTER.

HEADACHE, BALANCE PROBLEMS, SENSITIVITY TO LIGHT OR NOISE, DIFFICULTLY REMEMBERING WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE OR AFTER THE INCIDENT,

AND IRRITABILITY OR SADNESS. YOUR CHILD MAY ALSO FEEL SLEEPY. Return to index of stories...


CONCUSSIONS-BUB


DOCTOR'S ADVICE-- TAKE YOUR CHILD TO YOUR LOCAL PEDIATRICIAN IMMEDIATELY.

DR. SHAPIRO SAYS THE KEY TO RECOVERY IS SLEEP, RESTING PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, AVOID ACTIVITIES THAT MAY CAUSE ANOTHER HEAD INJURY.
